The US and Iran are joining forces to try to convince the IOC to reinstate wresting as an Olympic sport in September of this year (1).
"We'll be standing arm-in-arm with Iran, and we'll be standing with Russia as we will with lots of other countries" said Mitch Hull, the US wrestling team director (1).
The US team is currently in Tehran attending the World Cup wresting tournament from Feb 19-22, 2013.
